    I know I'm not the only one who carries around two phones. How is your experience using both an Android and an iPhone?

    Currently I'm rocking both a Pixel 2 XL and an iPhone X.

    I must say the Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic phone, though I do enjoy my X a little more the Pixel is the way I always wished Android phones were. Honestly it's super fast and the UI is really clean with no bloatwate added on to it. If I was forced to live with just the Pixel I wouldn't have too many complaints at all so far. I'm actually using it right now to type this post. It's definitely a much better user experience for me than any Samsung phone I've used in the past, although I would kill to have the functionality of the S pen on both my iPhone X and the Pixel 2 XL. It's literally the only feature I feel like I'm missing out on in the smartphone market.

    No, there are members who carry multiple smartphones. Although I have both an iPhone X and an iPhone 8, I only use the iPhone C as my daily driver. My iPhone 8 is used with my drone......As for an Android device, I haven’t used one of them in about 8 years or more.

    I switch between my iPhone X and my Blackberry KeyOne Android device and I will always have a soft spot for Blackberry and I do like the way they have integrated the Blackberry suite into Android.

    I do find myself liking IOS a little more then Android because I use iMacs in my business and the integration between IOS and the Mac desktop is second to none.

    I the end it’s a personal choice and whatever works best for the end user is what I will always recommend.

    I have the Note 8 and IPhone X. I actually use the S pen almost everyday for my work. I keep on coming back to the iPhone, but I never stay for long. I always end up missing the Note. If the iPhone had a stylus, it would be perfect for me.

    I use both - iPhone 8 Plus is primary, and Samsung Galaxy S9 is secondary. I can't see myself moving away from iOS any time soon, but the S9 is surprisingly good. I'd only consider switching if Samsung and other OEMs would get serious about security (and ideally platform) updates.

    I'm carrying the same combination. I've been using the Pixel as my work phone for about 2 months. That's the longest I've lasted with an android as my 2nd phone in over a year. I was carrying an 8+. I still have it in case I get tired of the Pixel.
    Tried Samsung S7, S8 and Note 8. Haven't lasted more than a month until I would switch back to iPhone.

    X and Note 8 for me. I use T-Mobile digits in the Note 8 so I can have the same number on both devices. Its primarily turned into my dedicated car device for Android Auto however. If CarPlay ever starts working properly Ill probably dump the Note.

    I can only speak for myself, but unless I was given an Android specifically for work I see absolutely no reason whatsoever to own one again. Already drank that Kool-Aid.

    The people that I know personally that carry 2 devices have the iPhone X and the Pixel XL 2. I've never played around with them, but it sounds like they're worth checking out.

    They totally are worth checking out, I honestly don't think you could go wrong with either device. I just opted into the Android P beta and if the OS stays as snappy and fluid in the final release as it is in the first beta release it's going to be serious competition for iOS.

    I have both the Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X and I prefer the Pixel 2 XL. It has better battery life, better reception, takes better photographs, and it's Android.

    But my opinions change like the wind and I could love the iPhone X more than the Pixel 2 XL tomorrow. This is why I have both.

    I think I prefer Android in many ways, and I'm enjoying trying out Android P on my Essential phone, but I still use my X as a primary device because of the Apple watch. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but Apple seems to have a clear advantage in accessories. Of course, it also helps that you can get the Google Assistant on Apple devices.

    I have the exact same setup and agree with you all around. I enjoy both phones a great deal. I am primarily an Android person, but this is the first pixel I have used and will never go back to Samsung or LG. There is a night and day user experience between Google and the other Android phones.

    I normally carry my X around when I’m hiking because it is smaller and with the case I have on it Is a little more hardened.

    I like to switch things up so I will carry one for a week and then go back-and-forth. The only drag is having to remember to shut off iMessage LOL.

    I am very fortunate that I can enjoy the best that both operating systems have to offer. It is win win for me.

    I currently have the X and my backup phone is a Nextbit Robin. I usually also have an up to date Android phone, but haven't gotten one since I sold my S8+. The Note series calls my name every year around release because I do love the S-Pen, but I wanna try something I haven't used in a while. Waiting to see what HTC does with the U12. If I don't want it, then I'll get a Sony Xperia XZ2. For whatever reason, Pixels just don't appeal to me.

    I have an iPhone X and have bought 3 pixel 2 XL’s, used them for a week at a time and go back to my X. I ended up selling them all because I can’t figure out how I’d own both and constantly go back and forth between 2 different operating systems.

    I wanted to use the Pixel 2 XL as my daily driver and ditch the iPhone in the worst way, but for whatever reason I always came back to the iPhone. My entire family is iOS users so that is a big reason. I hate that am locked into iOS, I feel like I am stuck and can’t leave. For a $1,000 starting price, the iPhone X really isn’t that special. If android had iMessage (hopefully RCS soon) I’d be using a pixel as my daily driver. I also hated the screen on the pixel 2 XL, it just wasn’t a good user experience for me seeing that blue shift and the dull colors. The X does feel so much better in my hands and it is one of the many reasons why I can’t leave it, but I want to in the worst way!!! Make sense?!

    I want the customization and freedom on an android device. I want a device that’s mine and doesn’t look like everyone else’s (including my 85 year old grandmothers). They all look the same!

    Welp, I bit the bullet and preordered the HTC u12+. So I'll be carrying both on work days. I'm going to change all my work info to the HTC in order to separate my work/home life when I'm off.
